Jamaican Spice Bun Bread

Jamaican Spice Bun Bread created by Alison S.

My husband is from the beautiful island of Jamaica. I made up this recipe for spice buns & he loves them. Excellent served with a slice of processed cheese. On the island they usually serve this during Easter with Tastee Cheese (canned cheese). Enjoy!

    The spice bun is an Easter tradition in Jamaica. However, since I am now living in Malaysia and couldn't go to the grocery store to purchase HTB or Yummy buns here, I decided to try this recipe. I was pleasantly surprised as the bun came out much better than I anticipated. It was extremely moist. It is the real deal!

    I don't add the honey, if you want a moist bun I stand my loaf tins in a tray of water and cover them with foil for 30 mins then remove the foil. I find it doesn't dry out. I glaze the buns with honey, butter and water which when boiled makes a nice shiny glaze.
